Baked oatmeal, bursting with juicy berries, nutty almonds and spiced with aromatic chai makes this easy make-ahead recipe a breakfast time winner!
Chai is my obsession in the autumn and winter months, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy it all year round too. When teamed up with summer berries, it gives it a whole new twist, juices from the berries really brings it alive.
Making time in your morning routine to kick-start your day with a nutritious breakfast is the perfect action of kindness towards yourself and your body will be forever grateful. Eating mindfully and taking your time over breakfast will help to give your metabolism a boost, focus your mind and help to stabilise your blood sugar. Looking after your emotional and physical health through actions of self-care, like making time for breakfast is something that I’m incredibly passionate about and is highlighted so well by the #WomanKind campaign.
